A local resident was arrested without incident Tuesday night immediately after she reportedly sold her prescription medication to a confidential informant.

Laura A. Bianchi, 34, of 23 E. Main St., Greenwich, was arrested about 6 p.m. She was charged with possession of drugs, a third-degree felony, punishable by nine months to three years in prison. She was transported to the Huron County Jail.

"We had a person give us information about this female subject who was selling prescription medication from her house," Greenwich Police Chief Steve Dorsey said. "It was her prescription medication, not someone else's."

Police wired a male informant who went to Bianchi's house, where the suspect sold him one Percocet pill, Dorsey said.

The chief said officers have had "previous encounters" with Bianchi, but nothing drug-related.
